Hey there!

The first army I ever painted or played in my life was Blood Angels, way back in 3rd ed. I was young and the blood red marines really caught my eye and I loved the fluff and everything about them. It was a time when the Angels raged across the board, beyond control. Brothers were lost at the eve of battle to join the death company and if you were unlucky and terminators fell to the black rage. Those were the days. I had a crapload of marines. Painted bright red. I was not a good painter, not at all. But I finished each and everyone of my models.

Then I forgot about my loved Blood Angels. Only 8 years later would they resurface when myself and a friend for some reason were rummaging through the attic. So I decided to repaint them, not in the bright red manor but in a darker more sinister tone and the Angels Vermillion suited me perfect.

This Christmas I received the new Blood Angels codex and I felt the urge to pick up my dear Angels Vermillion once again. I had with the previous codex 1500 pts of finished marines and now with the updates and new models I looked over my list and wrote a new one. This one is based upon what I currently have so that I can get right down to gaming again. I know that it might not be optimized but I aim to keep it less cheesy than what I man can do. This is my first list with the new 'dex.

The list, 1000 pts.
Reclusiarch
Jump pack, melta bomb
150 pts

Sanguinary Priest
Jump pack, power weapon
80 pts

Death Company 5 st
jump packs, power fist
160 pts

Baal Predator
Heavy bolters Assault Cannon
145

Tactical Squad 10 st
Meltagun, power fist, missile launcher
200 pts

Rhino
Storm bolter
50 pts

Assault Squad 10 st
power weapon, melta bomb
205 pts


And I will shortly get up pics of what I have finished for this army. Most of it is painted one year ago.

All the best,
Boo

And there we are. I just need to finish two more DC to complete my 1000 pts force! All these were painted over a year ago, so it's not quite the standard I paint today, but I do not have the patience to re-paint them, again! :D

All the best,
Boo

They look good Boo But I do look forward to your new ones you plan to paint too. This makes me want to go get my blood angels from the space hulk box.

Looking good Mr. Boo! I too, look forward to perusing the next instalment of sanguine delights! I've always had a soft spot for Blood Angels and especially for the Vermilon!

Cheers,

New DC
ai222.photobucket.com_albums_dd189_ododen_DCwip.jpg

Finished DC (where I've exchanged the JPs for normal backpacks and given them a rhino to ride around in) I know that the picture is kind of badly composed, but I will get a better one when they are all finished.

Only got the chaplain, 3 more DC, 2 jumpers (who are halffinished) to paint and them I'm home free!

All the best,
Boo

Are you using the lemartes model as a normal chaplain with a normal back pack or with a jump pack? The model itself is great and really dynamic. Your basing is nice too.

I am using him as a normal Chappy, for now might make him Lemartes in 2000 pts. :) He will have a regular backpack and go in the Rhino with the DC :)

Cheers for the feedback Goggalor! :)

Cheers Niko! :) And let me tell you that I am very tempted by the DC dreadnought, so tempted that I've decided to include him in 2000 pts. But that is in the future... sadly. ;)

But Now I've got some more pictures. A finished Sanguinary priest and some more work done on the chappy. Enjoy! :)

Chaplain still wip but now with even more paint on!
ai222.photobucket.com_albums_dd189_ododen_Chaplainwip3_1.jpg

So still got some stuff to paint. Now only 3 regular and 3 DC left to do.

Also I've got some finished stuff that are yet not snapped pictures of, oh and I now realized that the first pictures in this thread are snapped a little bit too close to my marines so they look crappy and badly painted. Gotta fix that too someday...

All the best,
Boo

Really nice there. I like the lemartes without the jump pack. The colours stand out well against the black and complement your army. :thumbsup:
